Estella Bartlett Avocado NecklaceYou can never have too many white shirts in your wardrobe, true.  But you can have too much of the same thing.  So, in a bid to bring some diversity to my shirt collection, this year I've been searching for various statement shirts (starting back in May with Karen Millen's coveted Super Frill Shirt - in a very 'Alice in Wonderland' kind of setting!).  But the search didn't stop there, and I've since found myself eyeing up ruffles, pussy bows, pleats and embroidered beauties.  At the end of this post, I've put together a little edit of classic white shirts with a twist, ready to pair with your favourite denim and midi skirts...

Classic White Shirt With a Twist

Z for Accessorize dainty jewellery ringsThis shirt marks my first Needle and Thread purchase, having discovered the embroidered style on Net-a-Porter at the weekend. The busy, ditsy floral design calls for simple, dainty jewellery and so I've paired it with the cutest necklace of all time - a mixed metal and gold plated mini avocado from Estella Bartlett.  It's the ultimate blogger cliché and I love it!

Recognise this belt?  I haven't actually worn it since pairing it with the striped shirt dress for Riviera styling, though considering I'm yet to take the plunge with Gucci's popular GG belt, it's a bit of a godsend!  Statement logo-belts can add so much to a classic white shirt, and without going overboard.
